in order to get proposition 30, the tax measure that he wants very badly to win in november. so, how did he balance his act? >> as you might recall, many years ago, jerry brown expostulated the canoe theory of politics. you paddle on the left, you paddle on the right and you more or less go down the middle in an erratic sort of way. and that's how he approached the legislation that reached his desk this year. he paddled a little on the left, paddled a little on the right. he gave the interest groups a little something here, a little something there. but he didn't give them everything they wanted. and ipd think really what was underlying all of this is not just a essenticentrism, but he want to rock the boat. he didn't want anything to have reverberation to echo and to maybe alienate significant blocks of voters that might look poorly on him, on the capitol, on the legislature. he was saving the legislature from itself in many ways, because what he really wants to happen is the voters to pass his tax increase and anything that would cause great controversy and perhaps damage his image damage
